Mōkihinui River share certificate

Mōkihinui River share certificate

A plan by the state-owned Meridian energy company to dam the Mōkihinui River on the South Island's West Coast led the conservation interest group Forest and Bird to begin a campaign to save it. Supporters were invited to fund the group's legal campaign by buying a limited-edition shareholding certificate for $100. A decision on whether the dam would go ahead or not was to be reached in 2012.
